Mark Houston, MD, MS, FAHA, FASH, DABC; Internist & Cardiovascular Specialist; Director, Hypertension Institute and Vascular Biology HDL cholesterol plays vital roles in lipid biology and coronary heart disease pathophysiology.

by Sara Gottfried, MD and Bianca Garilli, ND, IFMCP Introduction We’re just starting to understand the full spectrum of toxic threats to the human body. What’s clear is that the body doesn’t know what to do with our myriad exposures to toxins. They clog the liver, then get stored in fat, and ultimately back up into the brain.

Fortunately, the biological underpinnings of anxiety involving the gene/environment interface, along with a growing evidence base of natural remedies, provide a strong foundation for us to help our patients.…
